    The FW Bell 5170 Gauss Meter represents the most recent design in magnetic measuring equipment. It utilizes digital signal processing technology, a world first, along with a dynamic probe correction which allows measurements from 0 - 20 kG with a basic accuracy of 1%. Applications with these CE compliant meters can range from sensitive laboratory environments to rugged industrial settings. The 5170 Gauss Meter includes a laboratory-friendly, 4" transverse probe (STH17-0404) and a domestic AC adapter.

    The 5100 Series allows the user to choose between Gauss, Tesla, or Ampere/meter readings and features a corrected analog output (±3V FS). This series also features an auto-zeroing function, auto range, relative mode, and min./max./peak hold. The 5100 Series Gauss Meters include a built-in software that eliminates the need for complex calibration procedures. The custom-formatted LCD user prompts facilitate ease of operation.
